I walked outside this afternoon to find Aytan playing with trucks and doing some browsing:
Since he is only 2 years, and I know for a fact he can’t read yet, he can’t even get away with saying he was “just reading the articles” like someone else I know…
The truth of the matter is, there are just more naked women here. On the TV, in the daily newspaper, on the beaches. It’s very different than at home. Does this objectify women? Promote the machismo atmosphere prevalent? This isn’t only true for Costa Rica though, if you travel the world, most places in Latin America, and Europe for that matter, you’ll notice this phenomenon.
On the other hand, does it mean women are just more proud/ comfortable with their bodies, perfect or not (remember those Dove ads of women in their underwear?) Are we Bostonians still just a bunch of puritans at heart?
